Suggest not taking ferric iron at all - or take with vit C to help avoid inactivation of key enzymes (e.g. tyrosine hydroxylase). IPS is designed to get through the stomach unchanged to be absorbed in the duodenum - while it's not much casein, suggest it might be ample for sensitive systems - OR - something else about that IPS 'delivery system' is a bit much. I had mixed results taking this - few OK, others not (e.g. major discomfort with repeat but occasional use only), regardless of what I ate/took with it - I find ferrous sulphate less problematic. If you tolerate the casein/succinylate, studies support this form 'decreases both the prevalence and the duration of adverse events without prejudice for the clinical efficacy' (from one study re IPS vs ferrous sulphate). However - there are also studies that show persistent, unresolved iron deficiency responds to manganese - another strategy worth invesigating, especially if there's a history of medications/herbs that affect liver chemistry/function, including liver 'cleansing'.

I have tried many different forms and brands of Iron due to anemia, I was not as satisfied with this product due to intestinal bloating.

I probably just didn't read this carefully enough, but it's not vegan. It does appear to be vegetarian, but I wish they would omit the milk products.

I found this to be the best iron supplement that I've tried. I have a sensitive stomach and it didn't cause me any issues.

This is the best form of Iron to take if one wants to avoid constipation from more commonly prescribed forms of Iron.I was severely anemic, and it is working remarkably well to bring my Iron and Ferritin levels back to normal. Jarrow has also been consistently reliable for me, and I highly recommend this one!

Jarrow IronSorb lives up to it's name -- it absorbs well. Plus it's the only iron supplement I've ever tried that didn't cause constipation.

This iron is easily absorbed with no constipation. Take with some ester-C apart from other vit's for best absorption.

Product needs to be taken on a full stomach or you might get an upset tummy.

This is a great non-constipating source of iron.
